  • Re: Shop vac for the Egg

    Maybe I'm an egg abuser, but in four years I've never vacuumed my MBGE. Hell, I've only had the firebox/ring out once. The ash rake does the trick and an old venturri brush cleaned the vent holes. Age old tip is to keep some ash in the bottom, it actually insulates the base from the direct burning lump above the fire grate, IR does travel in any direction, much like in a wood stove - you never clean it out down to the fire brick liner.
    I'm either terribly lazy or you guys are overthinking this.....
  • Re: Almost had a foodgasm...

    I have a butcher that will trim the bones off a rib roast and leave some extra on for dino bones. I cook all my "prime rib" bones off so the bones were either for au jus or dino bones. SWMBO has asked for more beef rib and less roast - go figure. 

    What is the JH Mojave Garlic Pepper, never noticed that John Henry flavour.
  • Re: Inability to do 2 zone cooking on a round kamodo?

    Two zone cooking is a combination of direct IR from burning lump and shadowed or indirect convection heat. The XL is big enough you can put a brick in the center of the grate, load lump in one half and get true two zone cooking at the grid level. If you don't use a brick the fire will spread to the whole firebox. The LBGE gets pretty tight if you try this, IMO. 
    I have a large Primo and MBGE, like them both. I can warm twice bakers indirect while cooking a chicken raised direct in the Primo, can't do that in my MBGE. For reverse sear the Primo does a good job, cooking at 225ºF indirect and then open the vents and move the meat to the direct side with the grid on the firebox. (The Primo grids suck as they are not really reversible as claimed) I use my MBGE SS grid sitting on the Primo fire box. The oval shape has some advantages.

    @SGH - yeah, I agree, the "pocket" would be big enough but I don't think the strap would go around your waist,
  • OK, this is a first....

    I've had lots of lump treasures over the years, rocks, concrete, ashphalt, plastic, bottle caps and other hunks of metal, insulation and even the odd coin but never a dust mask. When I first reached in the bag and felt something soft it scared the hellout of me. First thought it might be 1/2 of a bikini top. Glad to see the kiln guys at FOGO Quebracho are working safely....
